Sample 20-Minute Abs Workout
by Justin Leonard

The proper way to train abs is widely debated by experts. The truth is, there is no right or wrong way to go about training abs. What works for someone else may not work for you. Everyone has a different body type. Results will vary from person to person.

As stated before, the most fat is burned when abs are trained with very little in the stomach. One should also consider performing some type of cardiovascular activity prior to beginning your training session. This minimizes your chance of overexerting the muscles of the abdomen.

I have designed a generic abs workout for starters. Feel free to modify as needed. This routine uses a traditional one-after-the-other technique. You could also incorporate the use of compound sets. This workout technique involves performing two different exercises for the abdomen and obliques muscles.

Crunches - 5 sets of 20 - hold each repetition for 10 seconds

Side Crunches - 5 sets of 20 - hold each repetition for 10 seconds


That's it! It should take less than 20 minutes to complete this routine.
